Great Reward of feeding a Fasting Person to Break his Fast – Dr. Saleh as Saleh [Short Clip|En]

The Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said,

“Whoever feeds a fasting person will have a reward like that of the fasting person, without any reduction in his reward.”

[At-Tirmidhi, authenticated by Al-Albani (rahimahullaah).]

Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih Al-‘Uthaimeen (rahimahullaah) said,

“Those who have the ability should strive to feed those who are fasting (when it’s time to break the fast) either in the masaajid or in other places. This is since whoever feeds a fasting person, he will receive the same reward as the one fasting. So if a person feeds his brothers who are fasting, he will receive the same reward as them. Therefore, those whom Allaah has granted wealth should take advantage of this opportunity to obtain a great reward.”

The following are taken from Fortress of the Muslim, Dar-us-salam Publication

Offered food when fasting & you decline:

When you are invited (to eat) then reply to the invitation. If you are fasting then invoke Allah’s blessings (on your host), and if you are not fasting then eat.

Muslim 2/1054

Breaking fast in someone’s home:

أَفْطَرَ عِنْدَكُم الصّائِمونَ وَأَكَلَ طَعامَكُمُ الأبْرار، وَصَلَّتْ عَلَيْكُمُ الملائِكَة

Aftara ‘indakumus-saa’imoona, wa ‘akala ta’aamakumul-‘abraaru, wa sallat ‘alaykumul-malaa’ikatu

With you, those who are fasting have broken their fast, you have fed those who are righteous, and the angels recite their prayers upon you.

Benefit: Sleeping in a State of Purification 

From Abu Hurairah that the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam – said:

       ” من بات طاهرا بات في شعاره ملك لا

         يستيقظ ساعة من الليل إلا قال الملك:

        اللهم اغفر لعبدك فلانا، فإنه بات طاهرا “.

‘Whoever sleeps while in a state of purification then an Angel sleeps in his garment, he does not wake up at any time during the night except that the Angel says: O Allaah forgive Your slave such and such since he went to sleep upon purification.’

Deeds Multiplying in Ramadhaan – Shaykh al-Albaani

Source: silsilat ul-hudaa wa nnoor – the series of guidance and light – tape no. 693

Question #11: “Are good deeds multiplied in general during Ramadhaan and likewise evil deeds?”

Shaykh al-Albaani (rahimahullaah) answers:

“This question is also often brought up regarding Makkah and the one residing in Makkah, whether he is a foreigner or a Makkan; are good deeds and evil deeds multiplied over there? The answer: there isn’t any text in the Islamic legislation clearly (stating) that good deeds are multiplied, and likewise evil deeds, due to the excellence of a (certain) place or the excellence of a (certain) time; excellence of a place like Makkah and Madinah for example (and) excellence of a time like this month of ours, the month of Ramadhaan. There isn’t any clear text about good deeds or evil deeds being multiplied (in such cases). But some of the scholars, by way of deduction, say that they are multiplied – by way of deduction, i.e., not based on a text but rather by way of ijtihaad.[1] So if someone says that good deeds are multiplied, there is no harm in that because it is the saying of some of the scholars. But it is not allowed to be absolutely certain about that due to the nonexistence of (relevant evidence mentioned in) the holy text which ‘falsehood cannot come to from before it or behind it.’”[2]

The Excellence of the Four Statements (Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar) – Shaykh AbdurRazaaq al-Badr

The Excellence of the Four Statements

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ، وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ، وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ

‘Far is Allaah from imperfection, and all praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest,’

(Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar)

By AbdurRazaaq bin AbdulMuhsin al-Badr
Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya

Part 01

AbdurRazaaq bin AbdulMuhsin al-Badr said:

‘Indeed the best speech and the most excellent remembrance after the Noble Qur’aan is four statements. They have an exceptional value, they consist of a great matter and have a high status in the Deen of Allaah, and they are:

‘Far is Allaah from imperfection, and all praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest,’ (Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar).

There are many texts, which show the excellence of these four statements that emphasize this great matter, and the value of these statements and the resulting great reward when establishing them and their noble excellence and their continuous benefits in the Dunyaa and the Hereafter. We will attempt to present some of the excellence of these statements from some of the texts, which mention these benefits.

1- So from the excellence of these words is that they are the most beloved speech to Allaah. Imam Muslim collected in his book from the hadeeth of Sumrah bin Jundab Radi Allaahu anhu who said that the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘The most beloved speech to Allaah consists of four, there is no harm with which one you begin, Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar.’[1]

And collected by Tayyalisi in his ‘Musnad’ with the wording:

‘There are four statements that are the most beloved speech to Allaah, and they are in the Qur’aan, there is no harm which one you begin with: Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu Akbar.’[2]

2- From their excellence is that the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam informed us that they are more beloved to him than what the sun rose upon (i.e. from the Dunyaaand what is in it,) Muslim collected in his book ‘Saheeh’ from the hadeeth of Abu Hurairah who said: the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘Indeed that I say: ‘Far is Allaah from imperfection, and all praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest,’ (Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar) is more beloved to me than what the sun rose upon.’[3]

3 – From their excellence is, what is mentioned in ‘Musnad’ of Imam Ahmad and ‘Shu’ab al-Eeman’ by Bayhaqi with a good Isnaad from Assim bin Bahdalah from Abu Salih from Umm Hani bint Abu Talib who said: ‘The Messenger of Allaah walked past me so I said: ‘Indeed I have become old and weak – or something similar to this – then he ordered me with an action which I should do while I am sitting. He sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘Say Subhana Allaah one hundred times, indeed it is equivalent to freeing one hundred slaves from the offspring of Isma’eel.

And say Alhamdulillaah one hundred times, it is the equivalent to one hundred horses saddled with reins ready to carry a person in the path of Allaah.

And say Allaahu akbar one hundred times, since it is the equivalent to one hundred camels slaughtered for the sake of Allaah.

And say La illaah ila Allaah one hundred times, Ibn Khalf (the narrator from Aasim) said: I think he said: it fills what is between the heavens and the earth and on that day no one will have an action raised except the one who came with the like of it.’[4]

Al-Mundhari said: Ahmad collected it with a Hasan Isnad[5] and the ‘allaama al-Albaani declared its Isnad Hasan.[6]

Reflect upon this great reward, which is a result of these words. So whoever says Subhana Allaah hundred times then it is the equivalent to freeing a hundred slaves from the sons of Isma’eel, the offspring of Isma’eel was mentioned specifically because they are the noblest of the Arabs in lineage.  Whoever says Alhamdulillaah a hundred times then he will have the reward as the one who gave charity of one hundred horses saddled and reined ready to carry the Mujahideen in the path of Allaah. Whoever says Allaahu Akbar a hundred times then he will have the reward as the one who spends camels slaughtered for the sake of Allaah. Whoever said la illaah ila Allaah a hundred times then it fills what is between the heavens and the earth and no one’s action is raised except if one comes with what was mentioned.

4- From the excellence of the status of these words, is that they are an expiation for sins. It is mentioned in ‘al-Musnad’, ‘Sunnan Tirmidhi’ and ‘Mustadrak al-Hakim’ from the hadeeth of Abdullaah bin ‘Amr bin al-‘Aaas Radi Allaahu anhuwho said the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘There is no person on earth who says: ‘la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar, wa Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, La hawla wa la quwwata illa billaa, (There is no capability nor is there any power except with Allaah) except that his sins are expiated even if they were more than the foam on the sea.’

Tirmidhi declared it to be Hasan, and al-Hakim authenticated it and Dhahabi agreed with him and al-Albaani declared it to be Hasan.[7]

As for the meaning ‘expiation of sins’ here it means minor sins, as is mentioned in Saheeh Muslim from Abu Hurairah Radi Allaahu anhuthat the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam used to say:

‘The five daily prayers, from one Juma’ till the next Juma’, from one Ramadhan till the next Ramadhan is an expiation for what takes place between them as long as the major sins are kept away from.’[8]

Therefore expiation of sins has been limited to keeping away from the major sins; because a major sin can only be expiated by repentance.

Also there is a hadeeth that has been collected with the same meaning by Tirmidhi and other than him from Anas bin Malik Radi Allaahu anhu that the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam walked passed a tree which had dry leaves and he hit that tree with his stick and the leaves began to fall, the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘Indeed al-Hamdu lillaahi, wa Subhana Allaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar,cause the sins of a slave of Allaah to fall just like the leaves of this tree are falling.’

Declared Hasan by al-Albaani.[9]

5- From the excellence of these words is that they are plants of Paradise, Tirmidhi collected from Abdullaah bin Mas’ood, from the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallamthat he said:

‘I met the Prophet Ibrahim on the night when I was taken on the night journey, and Ibrahim said: O Muhammad convey my Salam to your Ummah, and inform them that Paradise has very fine soil, sweet water. That it has lowland and its plants are: ‘Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar’ (Far is Allaah from imperfection, and all praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest)’[10]

In the Isnaad of this hadeeth is AbdurRahman bin Ishaaq, however the hadeeth has two supporting narrations which strengthen this narration from the hadeeth of Abu ‘Ayyoub al-Ansari and from the hadeeth of Abdullaah bin Umar.

The meaning is that plants in Paradise grow quickly due to these statements, just like the plants that are planted on lowland and the growth of its plants is fast.

6 – From its excellence is that there is none better according to Allaah than a believer who lives his life in Islaam and says ‘Allaahu akbar, Subhana Allaahi, la illaah ila Allaah, and al-Hamdu lillaahi,’ a lot.

What is collected by Imam Ahmad and by Nisa’ee in ‘Amal al-Yawm wa Laylah’ with a Hasan Isnaad from Abdullaah bin Shaddad: is that a group of three people from the tribe of Udhraah came to the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam and accepted Islaam and Abdullaah said that the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said: ‘Who will look after them?’

Talha said: ‘I will.’

Abdullaah said: ‘They stayed with Talha and the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallamsent out a delegation and one of them went in it and was martyred.  Abdullaah said: then the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam sent another a delegation and another person went with them and was martyred.

Abdullaah continued: then the third person died on his bed.

Talha said: ‘I saw these three people who stayed with me [in a dream] they were in Paradise, and I saw the one who died on his bed in front of them, and I saw the one who was martyred last after him and I saw the one who was martyred last behind them.  Talha said: I came to the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam and I mentioned this to him, and the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘Why did you not stop them from going with the delegation, there is none better according to Allaah from a believer who lives his life in Islaam and says ‘Allaahu akbar, Subhana Allaahi, la illaah ila Allaah, and al-Hamdu lillaahi,’ a lot.’[11]

This great hadeeth shows the great excellence of the one who has a long life and his actions are good, and his tongue continues to be moist with the Dhikr of Allaah – Azza wa Jal, and success is from Allaah Alone.

Shaykh AbdurRazaaq bin AbdulMuhsin al-Badr said:

‘Previously, we covered a number of virtues of these four statements: they are the best speech after the Qur’aan, they are ‘Far is Allaah from imperfection, and all praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest,’ (Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu Akbar).

Here we will continue with another number of benefits from these statements from the Ahadeeth of the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam which mention these statements:

7- From their excellence is that Allaah chose these statements and chose them for His slave, and Allaah has set aside for the one who remembers Allaah saying them, with great and abundant reward.

In the ‘Musnad’ of Imam Ahmad and ‘Mustadrak’ of al-Hakim with an authentic Isnaadfrom the hadeeth of Abu Huraira and Abu Sa’eed Radi Allaahu anhumma: that the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘Indeed Allaah chose four statements: ‘Far is Allaah from imperfection, and all praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest,’ (Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu Akbar). So whoever says ‘Subhana Allaah,’ twenty good deeds are written for him, and twenty bad deeds are taken away.  Whoever says ‘Allaahu akbar’ then he gets likewise. Whoever says ‘La illaah ila Allaah,’ then he gets likewise.  Whoever says ‘Alhamdulillaahi Rabbil Al-Ameen’ from his own self then thirty good deeds are written for him and thirty sins are cancelled from him.’[1]

The reward for the slave of Allaah saying al-Hamd (Praise) is increased more than the other four, when he says it from his own self; this is because al-Hamd does not generally occur except after a reason for saying it, like eating or drinking, or the occurrence of a blessing, so it is as if the al-Hamd occurs due to something in return, for that which has been rendered to the slave of Allaah at the time of saying al-Hamd, so if the slave of Allaah mentions al-Hamd from his own self without any pushing factor to do so, nor for a new blessing (which Allaah has given him) then his reward is increased.

8- From their virtues is: that they are a protection from the Hell-Fire for the one who says them and they will come as a savior on the Day of Judgement for the one who says them and they will precede him. Al-Hakim collected in ‘al-Mustadrak’ and Nisa’ee in ‘Amal al-Yawm wa Layla’ and others from Abu Hurairah Radi Allaahu anhu who said that Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘Take your protection.’

We said: ‘O Messenger of Allaah against an enemy that has arrived?’

He said:

‘No, but your protection from the Hell-Fire, say: ‘Far is Allaah from imperfection, and all praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest,’ (Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu Akbar) since indeed they will come on the Day of Judgement as saviours and preceding good actions and they are the lasting good deeds of the righteous.’

Al-Hakim said: ‘This hadeeth is Saheeh upon conditions of Muslim and they did not collect it. Dhahabi agreed with al-Hakim. And it was authenticated by the ‘allaama al-Albaani -Rahimullaah.’[2]

This hadeeth includes an addition to the Ahadeeth which have preceded which is describing these statements that they are the lasting good deeds.

Allaah Ta’ala said:

<< But the enduring good deeds are better to your Lord for reward and better for [one’s] hope. >> [18:46]

The lasting good deeds are those deeds due to which their reward remains, and is continuous, and this is the best at what a slave of Allaah can expect and hope for and expect the best reward.

9 – And from its benefits is: that they make a curve around the ‘Arsh of ar-Rahman and they have a buzzing sound like the buzzing of the bee, by which they mention /remember the one who said them.

In the ‘Musnad’ of Imam Ahmad and Sunnan Ibn Majah and ‘al-Mustadrak’ by al-Hakim from Nu’man bin Basheer Radi Allaahu anhu who said: the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘Indeed what you remember/mention from the magnificence of Allaah is sayingSubhana Allaah, Allaahu Akbar, la illaah ila Allaah and Alhamdulillaah, it curves around the ‘Arsh, they have a buzzing sound like the buzz of the bee, which (mention/remember) its (companion/the one) who says it. Does not one of you want that, or wish that someone still remembers you by it.’

Al-Busseeri said in: ‘Zawaid Sunnan Ibn Majah: ‘Its Isnaad is Saheeh, its narrators of trustworthy, and it was authenticated by al-Hakim.[3]

Therefore, the benefit of this hadeeth is this great virtue, which is that these four statements curve around the  ‘Arsh, i.e. that they go around it, they have a buzzing sound like the buzz of the bee, i.e. a sound which is similar to the sound of the bee and in doing so it remembers the person who said them, and those words are the greatest encouragement for Dhikr with these statements, this is why the Messenger sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said in this hadeeth: ‘Does not one of you want that, or wish that someone still remembers you by it.’

10 – From their excellence: that the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that they are heavy on the scales.  Nisa’ee narrated in ‘Amal al-Yawm wa Layla’ and Ibn Hibban in his book called ‘Saheeh’ and al-Haakim and other than them from Abu Salma Radi Allaahu anhu who said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam saying:

Bakhin Bakhin – and pointed with his five fingers – how heavy they are on the scale: ‘Far is Allaah from imperfection, and all praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest,’ (Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu Akbar) and a righteous son that dies and his father is a Muslim and he benefits by him.’

Al-Haakim authenticated it and Dhahabi agreed[4] and the hadeeth has a support from the hadeeth of Thawbaan Radi Allaahu anhu, and al-Bazzar collected it in his ‘Musnad’ and said its Isnaad was Hasan.[5]

And his saying in the hadeeth: ‘Bakhin Bakhin’ this is a word, which is said when, being amazed by something and explaining its excellence.

11- From the excellence of these words is that for the slave of Allaah they are Sadaqah(giving charity) when he says each one of them.

It is collected by Muslim in his ‘Saheeh’ from Abu Dharr Radi Allaahu anhu:
Some of the companions of the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘O Messenger of Allaah, the affluent have made off with the rewards, they pray as we pray they fast as we fast, and they give away in charity the extra of their wealth.’

He sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘Has not Allah made things for you to give away in charity? Every Tasbihah (saying:Subhana Allaah) is a charity, every Takbirah(saying: Allaahu Akbar) is a charity, everyTahmidah (saying: al-Hamdu lillaah)is a charity, and every Tahlilah (saying: la illaah ila Allaah)is a charity, to enjoin a good action is a charity, to forbid an evil action is a charity, and in having relations with your wife is a charity.’

They said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, when one of us fulfils his desire (with his wife) will he have some reward for that?’

He sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘Do you not think that if he were to act upon it unlawfully he would be sinning? Likewise, if he has acted upon it lawfully he will have a reward.’[6]

The poor people thought that there was no Sadaqah except by giving money, and they were incapable of doing that, so the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam informed them that all types of good actions and being good is Sadaqah, and the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that at the head of good actions are these four statements ‘Far is Allaah from imperfection, and all praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest,’ (Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu Akbar).

12 – From the excellence of these statements is that the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam made these statements in place of the Noble Qur’aan for the one who truly cannot read it.

It is narrated by Abu Dawood, Nisa’aee, Daraqutni and other than them from Ibn Abee Awfa Radi Allaahu anhu who said: ‘A man came to the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam and said: ‘O Messenger of Allaah indeed I cannot learn the Qur’aan, so teach me something that will give me a reward.’ He sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘Say: ‘Far is Allaah from imperfection, and all praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest, There is no capability nor is there any power except with Allaah.’ (Subhana Allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu Akbar wa La hawla wa la quwwata illa billaa.)

Then the Bedouin said: ‘like this – and he closed his hand – and said: This is for Allaah, what is for me?’

The Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

اللهم اغفر لي وارحمني وعافني وارزقني واهدني

‘Say: O Allaah forgive me, and have mercy on me, and pardon me, and provide for me, and guide me.’

Then the Bedouin took them [this supplication] and closed the palm of his hand. The Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

‘As for this person then he has filled his two hands with goodness.’[7]

The Muhaddith Abu Tayyib al-Atheem ‘Abbadi said in his comments on Sunnan Daraqutni its Isnad is Saheeh and Albaani -Rahimullaah- said its Sanad is Hasan.[8]

These are some of the virtues mentioned in the Prophetic Sunnah regarding these four statements.  There are specific virtues for every one of these statements. Whoever reflects upon these preceding virtues finds that they are very great, and show the great status of these statements and their lofty status and their many benefits and their advantages upon the believer, the slave of Allaah.

Perhaps the secret to this great excellence – and Allaah knows best – is what has been mentioned by some of the people of knowledge, which is that the Names of Allaah –Tabaraka wa Ta’ala – are all incorporated in these four statements. As for what is embodied in ‘Subhana Allaah’ is the Name of Allaah which show purity like al-Qudoos(The Holy) and as-Salaam (The Source of Peace).

As for ‘Alhamdulillaah’ then it is comprises and affirms the different types of perfection for Allaah –Tabaraka – in His Names and His Attributes.

As for ‘Allaahu Akbar’ then it contains the Magnificence of Allaah and regarding Him as Great, and that none can enumerate praise upon Him, so whoever this possesses, then, He is the One Who is worthy of worship, which means that there is none worthy of worship except Him.

I swear by Allaah, look how great these statements are, and how magnificent their matter is, and how great is the result of the good for them.

We ask Allaah that He gives us the capability to observe these statements and to be continuous upon them, and makes us from its people, those whose tongues are moist with remembering them, indeed Allaah is The Protector of that and He is The Capable One.

The Hadeeth of the Prophet which were chosen For their great rewards for easy actions

Hadeeth taken from ‘Saheeh al-Kalima at-Tayyib’

Introduction

All praise belongs to Allaah, Lord of all the worlds. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, upon his family, his Companions and all those who follow his guidance until the Day of Judgment.

Then to proceed, indeed Allaah Ta’ala sent Muhammad sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam with the most eloquent of speech, Allaah Ta’ala says:

<<And he does not speak from his own desire, indeed it is revelation sent down to him>>

And He said:

<<What ever the Messenger gave you then take it, and what ever he prohibits you from then keep away from it>>

And He said :

<<Whoever obeys the Messenger then he has obeyed Allaah>>

Allaah has blessed this Ummah with the guidance of the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam and from the greatest of these blessings of guidance, is the ease of worship, coupled with the great reward for fulfilling that worship.

The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned, in many hadith, actions and sayings, which, if performed grant us great and well-known results. This is to encourage good actions and sayings.

This collection of hadeeth, contain some of the valuable pearls of sayings, from the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam. They yieldimmense rewards, in return of easy & effortless actions, for those whom Allaah has made them easy.

I have chosen these hadeeth from the book Saheeh al-kalima at-Tayyibby the Shaykh Muhammad Nasir-rudeen al-Albaani -Rahimullaah. This book consists of authentic hadeeth from the book of Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah -Rahimullaah- called al-kalima at-Tayib. All of thehadeeth mentioned in this pamphlet have been graded authentic from the research of Shaykh al-Albaani -Rahimullaah.

This pamphlet has only been only limited to the texts of the hadeeth, since not more than the text is required. I have named this collection Hawiz ala jawaiz (Gaining Rewards). Because these chosen hadeeth, which yield great rewards or great known results which the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam informed us of.

It would be of great benefit, if someone by Allaah’s permission could carry out research similar to this. Delving into the books of hadeeth to bring forth knowledge guidance & good works to the people.

The Hadeeth

1- The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said :

Whoever says: –

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَه،ُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْد،ُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

‘There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah Alone, He has no partners, to Him belongs the Dominion and for Him is all praise, and He is capable of all things.’ –

La ilaha ‘illa Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer

One hundred times in one day, then it is equivalent to him freeing ten slaves, a hundred good deeds are written for him, a hundred bad deeds are erased, it is a protection for him against shaytaan during that day until the evening, and no one comes with a better deed than him except for the man who does more actions than him.

2 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Whoever says: –

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ

‘Far is Allaah from imperfection and all praise is for Him’

Subhana allaahi wa bihamdihi

One hundred times in one day, then his mistakes / sins are cancelled out, even if they are like the foam on the ocean.

3 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

There are two words which are gentle on the tongue, heavy on the scales, and beloved to ar-Rahmaan: –

: سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ ، سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ الْعَظِيمِ.

‘Far is Allaah from imperfection and praise is for Him, Far is Allaah The Sublime from imperfection

Subhana allaahi wa bihamdihi, Subhana allaahil atheem

4 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Indeed that I say:

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ ، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ، وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ، وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ

‘Far is Allaah from imperfection, and all praise be to Allaah, and there is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest,’

Subhana allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar

– is more beloved to me than what the sun rose upon.

5 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Is one of you so weak that he cannot acquire a thousand good deeds everyday? So a questioner from amongst those sitting there asked him: How can anyone of us gain a thousand rewards?

He said: say:

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ

– Far is Allaah from imperfection –

Subhana allaahi

A hundred times, so a thousand good deeds are written for him or a thousand sins are cancelled for him.

6 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said :

Shall I not inform you of a statement, which is a treasure from the treasures of Paradise? I said: Yes O Messenger of Allaah, may my father and mother be sacrificed for you! He said: say:

لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ

There is no capability nor is there any power except with Allaah.

La hawla wa la quwwata illa billaa

7 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Whoso ever, reaches the morning & reaches the evening and he says:

سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ

-‘Allaah is far from imperfection and all praise is for Him’ –

Subhana allaahi wa bihamdihi

One hundred times, then no one brings anything better than him on the day of judgment, than what he has brought. Except the one who says what he has said, or has said more than him.

8 – On the authority of Mua’ad bin Abdillaah ibn Khubayb on the authority of his father who said we went out on a very dark and rainy night searching for the Messenger of Allaah so that he could pray for us, then I found him and he sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said : Recite.So I did not say anything, then he said: Recite. So I did not say anything, and he said: Recite, so I said: what should I recite? He said: recite:

“قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ”

Say that Allaah is the One.’ And the last two Soorahs (al-muawaathatayan) in the evening and the morning, three times for it will suffice you for everything.

9 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said :

Indeed the major supplication for forgiveness is to say

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِذَنْبِي وَأَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ

O Allaah You are my Lord, there is none worthy of worship in truth except You, You created me and I am Your slave and I abide to Your covenant and promise as best as I can, I seek refuge in You from the evil that I have committed, I profess to you my sins and I acknowledge Your favour upon me, so forgive me verily no one forgives sins except you.

Allaahumma anta rabbee, la ilaha illa anta, Khalaqtanee, wa ana abduka, wa ana ala ahdika wa wa’dika mastata’tu, a’outhu bika min sharri ma sanatu, aboo’u laka bini’matika alayya, wa aboo’u bee thambee, faghfirlee fa’innahu la yaghfiru ath-thunooba ‘illa ‘anta

So if the worshipper says this when the morning arrives, truly believing in it and he dies, enters Paradise, and if he says this when the evening arrives truly believing in it enters Paradise.

10 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

There is not one from amongst the worshippers, that if he says, in the morning of everyday and the evening of every night:

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الَّذِي لَا يَضُرُّ مَعَ اسْمِهِ شَيْءٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا فِي السَّمَاءِ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ

In the name of Allaah with whose name nothing is harmed what so ever, on this earth nor in the heavens whatsoever, and He is the All Hearing and All Knowing

Bismil-lahil-lathee la yadhurru ma’a ‘issmihi shay’un fil ‘ardhi wa la fissama’i wa huwa ‘as-samee’ul –‘aleem

Three times nothing harms him what so ever.

11 – On the authority of Abu Huraira –RadhiAllaahu anhu-, the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam had placed Abu Huraira to look after the charity, some one came to him to take from the charity – and this person came night after night, so on the third night Abu Huraira said to him: I will take you to the Messenger of Allaah. So he said Why don’t you leave me and I will teach you some words that Allaah will benefit you by – and Abu Huraira was of those who were very attentive regarding good deeds – so the person said to him: When you go to bed, read Ayaat ul-Kursi:

(الله لا إلهَ إلا هُوَ الحيُ القَيُومَ )

<<Allaah, none has the right to be worshipped except Him The Ever living, The One Who sustains and protects all that exists>>

[verse 255 from Soorah Baqarah]

Until the end of the Ayaah, then this will continue to be a protection for you from Allaah, and Shaytan will not be able to come near you until the morning arrives. The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said: He spoke the truth even though he is a liar, [that was Shaytan].

12 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Who ever recites the last two Ayaat from Soorah al-Baqarah at night, then those two verses will be sufficient for him.

13 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Shall I not show you what will be better for you than a servant? When you lie down on your bed, say SubhanAllaah 33 times, say al-hamdulillaah 33 times and say Allaahu akbar 34 times.

14 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Who ever wakes up at night, and says: –

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَه،ُ لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْد،ُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ،الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ،وَ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ ، وَلَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ، وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ ،وَ لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ العليِ الْعَظِيمِ.

‘There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah Alone, He has no partners, He has the Dominion and for Him is all praise, and He is capable of all things, praise is for Him, and Far is Allaah from imperfection, and There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah, and Allaah is the Greatest, there is no capability nor is there any power except with Allaah the Most High the ‘Atheem.’ (Supreme)

La ilaha ‘illa Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer Subhana allaahi, wal hamdu lillaahi, wa la illaah ila Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar

La hawla wa la quwwata illa billaa

Then he says : اللهمَ اغْفِرْلي O Allaah forgive me (Allaahumma aghfirlee), or he supplicates and his supplication is answered, and if he makesWudu and prays then his prayer is accepted.

15- The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Who ever goes to bed with purification….there is not an hour of the night that he asks Allaah for something of good from this world and the hereafter, except that Allaah grants him that which he asked for.

16 – Abu Salma said that he heard Abu Qatada say that he heard the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam say:

A good dream is from Allaah –Tabaraka wa Ta’ala– and a bad dream is from Shaytaan, so if anyone sees something in his dream which he dislikes, then he should spit on his left side 3 times when he awakens, and he should seek refuge with Allaah from its evil, then it will not harm him if Allaah so wills.

17 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

A good dream is from Allaah, so if any one of you sees something in his dream that he likes, then he should not relate it to anyone except the one whom he loves, and if he sees that which he dislikes, then he should not relate it to anyone, rather he should spit on his left side 3 times, and he should seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of the accursed shaytaan, and the evil of what he saw, then it will not harm him.

18- The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Our Lord –Tabarak wa Ta’ala- descends every night to the lowest heavens, when there remains the last third part of the night, and He says who is there that supplicates to me so that I may answer his supplication, who is there that asks of me so that I may grant him what he asks for, who is there that seeks my forgiveness so that I may forgive him.

19 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Indeed, there is an hour from the night, which if a Muslim asks Allaah in that time from the good of the affairs of this world and the hereafter, then Allaah gives him of it, and that is in every night.

20 – On the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Whoever says, as he leaves from his house:

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ ، تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللَّهِ ،ولَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ تعالى

In the name of Allaah, I have placed my trust in Allaah, and there is no capability nor is there any power except with Allaah Ta’ala

Bismillaahi tawwakaltu alalaahi wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billahi taa’la

then it is said to him: indeed you have been saved, and you have been protected, and you have been guided, and shaytaan has been kept away from him, so another shaytaan says: how can you affect a man who has indeed been guided and saved and been protected.

21 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

If a man enters his home, and he remembers Allaah when he enters and when he eats his food, the shaytaan says: there is no place for you to spend the night nor is there any dinner. And if he does not remember Allaah when he enters his house then the shaytaan says: you have found a place to spend the night and if he does not remember Allaah while he is eating his food then he says you have found food to eat.

22 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

O my son if you enter your home then say Salaam it will be a blessing for you and your family.

23 – When the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam would enter the Masjid he would say:

أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ الْعَظِيمِ وَبِوَجْهِهِ الْكَرِيمِ وَسُلْطَانِهِ الْقَدِيمِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ

– I seek refuge with Allaah The Supreme and with His Noble Face, and His eternal authority from the accursed shaytaan –

A’outhu bil-lahil ‘atheem, wa bi-wajhihil-kareem, wa bi-sultanihil-qadeem min ‘ash-shayanir-rajeemi

Then he said: if he says this supplication then the shaytaan says: this person has been protected from me for the rest of the day.

24 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

If the people knew what was there (in benefit for them) in the call to prayer and praying in the front row, and they could not get to it except by drawing lots, then they would draw lots.

25- The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

There is none from the Jinn, mankind and anything else that hears the reach of the Muaddthin’s (the caller to prayer) voice except that they will testify for him on the day of Resurrection.

26 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

If you hear the Muaddthin, then repeat what he says, then send prayers upon me, since indeed the one who sends prayers upon me once, Allaah sends ten prayers upon him. Then ask Allaah for me to be an intercessor since it is a high station in Paradise, which is not befitting except for a servant from the servants of Allaah and I hope that I am the one, so whoever asks intercession for me then intercession will take place for him.

27 -The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Who ever says, when he hears the call to prayer:

اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ التَّامَّةِ وَالصَّلَاةِ الْقَائِمَةِ آتِ مُحَمَّدًا الْوَسِيلَةَ وَالْفَضِيلَةَ وَابْعَثْهُ مَقَامًا مَحْمُودًا الَّذِي وَعَدْتَهُ

– O Allaah Lord of this perfect call to prayer and Owner of this prayer to be performed, bestow upon Muhammad a station in Paradise and a rank above the rest of creation and give him the honorable station which you have promised him –

Allaahumma rabba hathihi ‘addawatittamati, was-salatil qa’imati, ‘ati Muhammadan ál-waseelata wal faaheelata, wab’ath-hu maqqaman mahmoodan ‘allathee wa’adtahu

then my intercession occurs for him on the day of Judgment.

28- A man said O Messenger of Allaah indeed the callers to the prayer are more favored than we are. So the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said: repeat what they say, and when you finish ask, and you will be given.

29 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

A supplication that is made between the Adhaan and the Iqama is not rejected.

31 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Two things which are not rejected, or rarely rejected: A supplication made at the time of the call to prayer, and at the time when the battle becomes severe.

31 -The Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Shall I not teach you something, which the people who proceeded you attained, and those who come after you will proceed you with, and there will be no-one better than you except the one who does what you do? They said of course O Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam. So he said: say: – far is Allaah from imperfection, Allaah is the Greatest and Praise is to Allaah – SubanAllaah and Allaahu akbar and Alhamdulillaah at the end of every prayer 33 times each.

32 -The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Whoever says SubhanAllaah at the end of every prayer 33 times, says al-hamdulillaah 33 times, and says Allaahu akbar 33 times, then this adds up to 99, and if he says –

ِ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

‘There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah Alone, He has no partners, He has the Dominion and for Him is all praise, and He is capable of all things’

La ilaha ‘illa Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer

To complete a hundred, then his mistakes/sins are forgiven even if they were equivalent to the foam on the sea.

34 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

There are two characteristics or two qualities that if a Muslim slave of Allaah is continuous upon, will enter Paradise, they are simple but those who do them are few. To say SubhanAllaah at the end of every prayer ten times, says alhamdulillah ten times and says Allaahu akbar ten times, which is equivalent to 150 times on the tongue and 1500 on the scales. And he says Allaahu Akbar 34 times when he goes to bed and he says alhamdulillah 33 times and says SubhanAllaah 33 times, and that is equivalent to 100 on the tongue and 1000 on the scales.

34 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam used to teach us al-Istikharah (a prayer said for aid in making a decision) for all matters, just like he used to teach us a chapter from the Qur’aan, he would say: If any of you intends to undertake a matter then he should pray two Rakah other than an obligatory prayer then he should say

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْتَخِيرُكَ بِعِلْمِكَ وَأَسْتَقْدِرُكَ بِقُدْرَتِكَ وَأَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ الْعَظِيمِ ، فَإِنَّكَ تَقْدِرُ وَلَا أَقْدِرُ ، وَتَعْلَمُ وَلَا أَعْلَمُ وَأَنْتَ عَلَّامُ الْغُيُوبِ ، اللَّهُمَّ إِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا الْأَمْرَ خَيْرٌ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي أَوْ قَالَ عَاجِلِ أَمْرِي وَآجِلِهِ فَاقْدُرْهُ لِي وَيَسِّرْهُ لِي ثُمَّ بَارِكْ لِي فِيهِ وَإِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا الْأَمْرَ شَرٌّ لِي فِي دِينِي وَمَعَاشِي وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِي أَوْ قَالَ فِي عَاجِلِ أَمْرِي وَآجِلِهِ فَاصْرِفْهُ عَنِّي وَاصْرِفْنِي عَنْهُ وَاقْدُرْ لِيَ الْخَيْرَ حَيْثُ كَانَ ثُمَّ أَرْضِنِي بِهِ

O Allaah I request of You with Your knowledge, and by Your Power I seek capability, and I ask of you of your great favour, since indeed You are the One who is able while I am not, and You know and I do not, and You are the One who knows the unseen. O Allaah if You know that this matter – here he mentions his need – is good for me in this world and for my living and for the matters of my hereafter – or he said, for my affairs now and the future – then decree it for me and make it easy for me and bless it for me. And if You know that this matter is evil for me in this world and for my life and for the matters of my hereafter – or he said, for my affairs now and the affairs of my future – then turn it away from me and turn me away from it, and decree goodness for me where ever it may be and make me pleased with it.

35 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

The supplication of Yunas, when he supplicated while he was in the belly of the whale:

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ

– There is none worthy of worship in truth except You, far are You from imperfection, indeed I am from amongst the Thalimoon(oppressors) –

La ilaha ‘illa ‘anta, subhanaka ‘innee kuntu minath-thalimeena

No Muslim ever supplicates with this for anything except that Allaah responds to him.

36 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Allaah does not afflict a slave with grief nor sadness, except that if the slave says: –

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي عَبْدُكَ وَابْنُ عَبْدِكَ وَابْنُ أَمَتِكَ نَاصِيَتِي بِيَدِكَ مَاضٍ فِيَّ حُكْمُكَ ، عَدْلٌ فِيَّ قَضَاؤُكَ ، أَسْأَلُكَ بِكُلِّ اسْمٍ هُوَ لَكَ سَمَّيْتَ بِهِ نَفْسَكَ أَوْ عَلَّمْتَهُ أَحَدًا مِنْ خَلْقِكَ أَوْ أَنْزَلْتَهُ فِي كِتَابِكَ أَوِ اسْتَأْثَرْتَ بِهِ فِي عِلْمِ الْغَيْبِ عِنْدَكَ أَنْ تَجْعَلَ الْقُرْآنَ رَبِيعَ قَلْبِي وَنُورَ صَدْرِي وَجِلَاءَ حُزْنِي وَذَهَابَ هَمِّي

O Allaah indeed I am Your slave, and the son of Your slave, and the son of Your female slave, my forelock is in Your Hand, Your command over me is forever executed and Your decree over me is just. I ask of You with all Your names, which belong to You, which You have named Yourself with, or which You have taught someone from Your creation or revealed it in Your Book or that which You have taken unto Your self with the knowledge of the unseen with You, that You make the Qur’aan the life of my heart and light of my breast and keep away from me my sadness, and that my grief goes away –

Allaahumma ‘innee ‘abduka, wabnu ‘abdika, wabnu amatika, nasiyatee biyadika, madhin fiyya hukmuka, adlun fiyya qadha’uka, asaluka bikulli ismin huwa laka, sammayta bihi nafsaka, aw anzaltahu fee kitabika, ‘aw allamthu ahadan min khaliqika, aw ista’tharta bihi fee ilmil ghaybi ‘indaka, án taj’alal-qurana rabee’a qalbee, wa noora sadree, wa jala’a huznee, wa thahaba hammee

Then Allaah takes away his grief and sadness and replaces it with happiness.

37 – Uthman ibn al-Aas came to the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam and said: O Messenger of Allaah indeed the shaytaan comes between me and my prayer, and my recitation becomes confusing? The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said: This is a shaytaan called khunsabun, so if you sense his presence then seek refuge in Allaah from him and spit on your left hand side three times. Uthman said: I did that and Allaah kept him away from me.

39 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

There is no one from among Allaah’s servants, who is afflicted with an affliction except that he says: –

( إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ ) اللَّهُمَّ أْجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيبَتِي وَأَخْلِفْ لِي خَيْرًا مِنْهَا

Indeed, we belong to Allaah and indeed to Him is our return – O Allaah recompense me for my affliction and replace it with something better than that

Inna lil-lahi wa inna ‘ilayhi raji’oona, ‘allahumma’jurnee fee museebatee, wa ákhliflee khayran minha

Except that Allaah compensates him in what he has been afflicted with, and gives him that which is better than the previous thing.

40 – ‘Alee –RadhiAllaahu anhu:

Shall I not teach you words that the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam taught me that even if you have an equivalent of a mountain of debt upon you that Allaah will pay it off on you behalf? Say: –

َ اللَّهُمَّ اكْفِنِي بِحَلَالِكَ عَنْ حَرَامِكَ وَأَغْنِنِي بِفَضْلِكَ عَمَّنْ سِوَاكَ

O Allaah make what You have made lawful sufficient for me, as opposed to what You have made unlawful, and spare me by Your grace, from the need of others.

Allahumma ikfeenee bihalalieeka ‘an harameeka wa ‘aghninee bifadhlieeka ‘amman siwaka

41 – Uthmaan bin Abee al-Aaas complained to the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam about a pain he had in his body since he had become Muslim, so the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallamsaid to him: place your hand on the part of your body that pains you and then say: –

بِاسْمِ اللَّهِ

In the name of Allaah, – three times,

and say seven times : –

أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ وَقُدْرَتِهِ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَجِدُ وَأُحَاذِرُ

I seek refuge with Allaah and with His Capability from the evil that I feel and wary of

‘Aouthu bi’izzatil-lahi waqudratihi min sharri ma ‘ajidu wa’uhathiru

42 -The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Who ever visits a sick person who has not reached his appointed time, then says for him seven times: –

أَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ الْعَظِيمَ رَبَّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ أَنْ يَشْفِيَكَ

I ask Allaah The ‘Atheem (The Supreme), Lord of the magnificent ‘Arsh to cure you –

Except that Allaah cures him.

As’alul-laha ‘al-atheema, rabbal ‘arshil átheemi an yashfika

43 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Who ever stops at a place on his journey and then says: –

أَعُوذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللَّهِ التَّامَّاتِ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ

I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allaah from the evil of what He has created –

A’outhu bikalimatil-lahi ‘at-tammati min sharri ma khalaqa

nothing will harm him until he leaves from that place.

44 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Whoever eats some food and then says: –

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي أَطْعَمَنِي هَذَا وَرَزَقَنِيهِ مِنْ غَيْرِ حَوْلٍ مِنِّي وَلَا قُوَّةٍ

All praise be to Allaah Who fed me this food and provided it for me without any ability from my self nor any strength from my self –

Al-hamdu lil-lahi ‘al-lathee at-‘amanee hatha, wa razaqaneehi min ghayri hawlin minnee wa la quwwatin

except that his previous sins are forgiven.

46 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

You will not enter Paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another, shall I not show you something that by doing it, will cause you to love one another, spread salaams between yourselves.

47 – Imran bin Hussain said: that a man came to the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam and said: Peace be to you.

The Messenger of Allaah said: ten.

Then another man came and said: Peace be to you and the mercy of Allaah, the Messenger of Allaah said: twenty.

Then another man came and said : Peace be to you and the mercy of Allaah and His blessings, the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallamsaid: thirty.

47 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

If one of you wants to have relations with his wife and says: –

بِاسْمِ اللَّهِ اللَّهُمَّ جَنِّبْنَا الشَّيْطَانَ وَجَنِّبِ الشَّيْطَانَ مَا رَزَقْتَنَا

In the name of Allaah, O Allaah keep shaytaan away from us and keep shaytaan away from that which You provide for us –

Bismillahi allaahumma jannibna ash-shaytana, wajannib ásh-shaytana ma razaqtana

so if a child is born from them then shaytaan will never be able to harm him.

48 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Whoever sits in a gathering and speaks a lot, then he says before he gets up from his sitting place –

سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ

You are far from imperfection O Allaah, and praise is to You, I testify that there is none worthy of worship in truth except You, I seek Your forgiveness, and I repent to You –

Subhanaka allahumma wa bihamdika, ash-hadu alla ilaha illa anta, astaghfiruka wa atoobu ilayka

except that Allaah covers up for him what he said in that gathering.

49 – Sulaymaan bin Suradin said : I was sitting with the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam and two men were cursing, and one of them his face became red, and he became furious, the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said: indeed I know a statement if he says it then his anger will go away, if he says: –

أَعُوذُ بِاللَّهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ

I seek refuge in Allaah from the accursed shaytaan –

then his anger will go away.

50 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Whoever sees some one who has been tried and then says: –

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي عَافَانِي مِمَّا ابْتَلَاكَ بِهِ وَفَضَّلَنِي عَلَى كَثِيرٍ مِمَّنْ خَلَقَ تَفْضِيلًا

Praise be to Allaah Who has saved me from what He has trialed you with and chosen me above much of the creation –

Alhamdu lil-lahi allathee afanee mimma ibtalaka bihi, wa fadh-dhalanee ala katheerin mimman khalaqa tafdheelan

then that trial will not afflict him.

51 – The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said:

Whoever enters the market place and says –

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لَا يَمُوتُ بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

‘There is none worthy of worship in truth except Allaah Alone, He has no partners, He has the Dominion and for Him is all praise, He gives life and He takes life and He is the Ever living and does not die, in His Hand is goodness and He is capable of all things.’ –

La ilaha ‘illa Allaahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu yuhyee wa youmeet wa huwa hayun la yamoot biyadihi alkhair wa huwa ala kulli shayin qadeer

then Allaah writes a thousand thousand good deeds for him, and erases a thousand thousand bad deeds for him, and He raises him up a thousand thousand grades.

All Praise belongs to Allaah, may His peace and blessings be upon our final Prophet Muhammad, his family, his companions and all those who follow his guidance.

Martyrdom without Fighting

Imam Al-Nawawi’s Riyad-us-Saliheen
Chapter 235
Martyrdom without Fighting

1353.   Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “The martyrs are of five kinds: One who dies of plague; one who dies of disease of his belly; the drowned; one who dies under the debris (of construction, etc.), and one who dies while fighting in the way of Allah.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

1354. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Whom do you reckon to be martyr amongst you?” The Companions replied: “The one who is killed in Allah’s way.” He said, “In that case, the martyrs among my people would be few.” The Companions asked: “O Messenger of Allah! Then who are the martyrs?” He replied, “He who is killed in the way of Allah  is a martyr; he who dies naturally in the Cause of Allah is a martyr; he who dies of plague is a martyr; and he who dies of a belly disease is a martyr; and he who is drowned is a martyr.
[Muslim].

This Hadith shows the care Allah has for this Ummah, which is the best Ummah of mankind. (Editor’s Note)

1355. `Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`As (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “He who is killed while defending his property is a martyr.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

1356.   Sa`id bin Zaid bin `Amr bin Nufail (May Allah be pleased with him) reported, one of the ten Companions who were given the glad tidings of entering Jannah reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) saying: “He who dies while defending his property is a martyr; he who dies in defence of his own life is a martyr; and he who dies on defense of his faith is a martyr, he who dies in defence of his family is a martyr.”
[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].

1357.   Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A man came to the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) and asked, “O Messenger of Allah! What shall I do if someone comes to me with the intention of taking away my property?” He replied, “Do not hand over it to him.” The man asked, “What shall I do if he fights me?” The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Then fight him.” “What will be my position in the Hereafter if he has killed me?” The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) replied, “In that case you are a martyr.” The man asked: “What if I killed him?” The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) replied, “He will be in the Hell-fire.”
[Muslim].

[Must Read] When A Man Is In A Barren Land – Great Reward

Salmaan al-Farsee-radiyallaahu `anhu– said: Allaah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said:

When a man is in a barren land and the time for the Prayer comes then let him perform the wudoo·, and if he does not find any water then let him perform the tayyammum.

So if he gives the iqaamah his two Angels pray along with him; and

if he gives the adhaan and gives the iqaamah, then so many of Allaah’s army pray along with him that the two sides cannot be seen.

Reported by `Abdur-Razzaaq in his Musannaf, and by at-Tabaraanee; and Shaikh al-Albaanee declared it ‘Saheeh’ (authentic) in ‘Saheehut-Targheeb wat -Tarheeb’ of al-Mundhiree.

The Virtue of “Laa ilaaha illallaah” – Imaam Ibn Maajah and Imaam Tirmidhee

Translated by Dawood Burbank
Extracted From the Works of Imaam Ibn Maajah and Imaam Tirmidhee

* IMAAM IBN MAAJAH –rahimahullaah– reported in his ‘Sunan’:

The Book of Manners: Chapter (54): The Virtue of ‘Laa ilaaha illallaah’ (no. 3794) :

“Aboo Bakr narrated to us, saying: al-Husayn ibn `Alee narrated to us: from Hamzah az-Zayyaat: from Aboo Ishaaq: from al-Agharr, Aboo Muslim: that he bore witness that Aboo Hurairah and Aboo Sa`eed bore witness: that Allaah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

<<When the servant says ‘Laa ilaaha illallaah, wallaahu akbar’ (None has the right to worshipped except Allaah and Allaah is greater), (he said:) Allaah -the Mighty and Majestic- says: ‘My servant has spoken the truth: None has the right to be worshipped but Me, and I am greater (than everything.)’

And when the servant says: ‘Laa ilaaha illaallaah, wahdah’ (None has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, alone), He says: ‘My servant has spoken the truth: None has the right to be worshipped but Me, alone.’

And when he says: ‘Laa ilaaha illallaah, Laa shareeka lah’ (None has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, He has no partner), He says: ‘My servant has spoken the truth: None has the right to be worshipped but Me, and I have no partner.’

And when he says: ‘Laa ilaah illallaah, lahul-Mulku wa lahul hamd’ (None has the right to be worshipped except Allaah. Sovereighty is His, and all praise is for Him), He says: ‘My servant has spoken the truth: None has the right to be worshipped except Me. Sovereighty is Mine, and all praise is for Me.’

And when he says: ‘Laa ilaaha illallaah, wa laa hawla wa laa quwwata illaa billaah’ (None has the right to be worshipped but Allaah, and there is no movement and no ability except with Allaah’s aid) then He says: ‘My servant has spoken the truth: None has the right to be worshipped except Me, and there is no movement and no ability except with My aid.’>>

-Aboo Ishaaq said: Then al-Agharr said something which I did not understand. He said: So I said to Aboo Ja`far: ‘What did he say?’ He said:

<<Whoever is granted it at his death will not be touched by the Fire>>.”

Shaikh al-Albaanee –rahimahullaah– said: ‘Saheeh’, [‘asSaheehah’ (no. 1390)]

* Imaam at-Tirmidhee –rahimahullaah– reported it in his ‘Sunan’: The Book of Supplications:

Chapter (37): What should the servant say when he becomes ill (no. 3430),

and his wording contains the phrases:

( لا إلهَ إلاّ اللهُ وَ اللهُ أكْبَرُ )

( لا إلهَ إلاّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ )

( لا إله إلاّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ )

( لا إلهَ إلاّ اللهُ  لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَ لَهُ الْحَمْدُ )

( لا إلهَ إلاّ اللهُ  وَ لا حَوْلَ وَ لا قُوَّةَ إلاّ بِاللهِ )

(Laa ilaaha illallaah, wallaahu akbar)

(Laa ilaaha illallaah, wahdah)

(Laa ilaaha illallaah, wahdahu laa shareeka lah)

(Laa ilaaha illallaah, lahul-Mulku wa lahul-hamd)

(Laa ilaaha illallaah, wa laa hawla wa laa quwwata illaa billaah)

 

and it ends:

“…And he used to say:

<<Whoever says it during his illness and then dies, then the Fire shall not taste him.>>

[ Shaikh al-Albaanee said: ‘Saheeh’].

And the hadeeth occurs in ‘RiyaadusSaaliheen’ of Imaam an-Nawawee (no. 914).

Walk to Jumu’ah, fulfill these conditions for Hefty Reward – Hadith

Aboo Dawood reported (no. 345) from Aws ibn Aws ath-Thaqafee (radiallaahu ‘anhu):

I heard Allaah’s Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) say:

“Whoever washes his head on the day of Jumu’ah, and takes a bath and arrives in time, and he walks and he does not ride, and he draws close to the imaam, and he listens and he does not speak. Then for every step which he takes, there will be for him the reward of a year: the reward of fasting it and standing in Prayer.”

Shaikh al-Albaanee said this hadeeth is (saheeh) authentic.

This is one of many, many proofs of Allaah’s generosity. Indeed, Allaah is The Most Generous.
